The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Visit St. Patrick's Cathedral and St Paul's Cathedral for their historical value. Step out of the city life by going to Eastern Beach Reserve and Ballarat Wildlife Park. Venture out of the city with trips to National Vietnam Veterans Museum (in Newhaven), Art Gallery of Ballarat (in Ballarat) and Phillip Island Wildlife Park (in Cowes). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at 13th Beach, identify plant and animal life at Pulpit Rock, take a stroll through Melbourne Central, and get curious at Australian Centre for the Moving Image.

To find other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Melbourne trip builder app .

Port Pirie is the sixth most populous city in South Australia after Adelaide, Mount Gambier, Whyalla, Murray Bridge and Port Lincoln. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bungaree Station and Vine Art Studio, Gallery & Therapeutic Massage. Museum-lovers will get to explore Port Pirie RSL Museum and Port Pirie Regional Tourism & Arts Centre. Change things up with these side-trips from Port Pirie: Clare (Sevenhill Cellars, Mad Bastard Wines of Finery, & more), Sevenhill (Pikes Wines & St Aloysius Church) and Bowman Park (in Crystal Brook). And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Martindale Hall Heritage Museum, examine the collection at Steamtown Heritage Rail Centre, make a trip to Wallaroo Heritage Trail 37, and get engrossed in the history at Wallaroo Heritage and Nautical Museum.

Plan my trip to Port Pirie with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.
